Deadline: 15 November 2017
Open to: UK/EU applicants and international applicants
Scholarship: fully funded
The University of St Andrews is awarding three fully-funded doctoral scholarships for outstanding students looking to commence their doctoral degree in September 2018. UK/EU applicants and international applicants are eligible to apply for this scholarship programme.
The scholarships are funded by the Wolfson Foundation, an independent charity that supports and promotes excellence in the fields of science, health, education, and the arts and humanities. Since 2012 the Wolfson Foundation has committed some £13 million to support doctoral studies in the humanities at UK universities distinguished by their research excellence.
The University of St Andrews is one of the UK’s top universities and is one of Europe’s most research intensive seats of learning.
The following criteria must be met in order for applicants to be eligible for the scholarship:
Geographical criteria: No restrictions;
Domicile for fee status: No restrictions;
Level of study: Postgraduate research (doctoral);
Year of entry;2018-19 academic years; applicants must be able to start their degree in September 2018.*
Each scholarship is worth GBP 84,000 to be paid in equal amounts over three years (full-time registration) or six years (part time registration). The scholarships are sufficient to cover annual registration fees with the balance payable to the scholarship holders as a maintenance component to support living costs and other expenses associated with their research such as travel to libraries, galleries, archives or attendance at academic conferences.
The scholarships are open to both UK/EU applicants and international applicants and are of sufficient size to cover the higher fees payable by international students. However, where the higher international fees are payable the balance remaining for the maintenance component will be reduced by the corresponding amount.
